Fifty Years of Elmwood Park is Temporarily Offline for Maintenance

We are working on adding more metadata to the photographs, so we’ve taken the project down for a while. In the meantime, you can still view 150 photographs from our collection on our Flickr page.  We should have Fifty Years back up in about a month.  We will keep you posted on our pr0gress.

The Elmwood Park Local History Center is always looking for any items pertaining to our Village history.  Items such as area newspapers (pre-1971), telephone books (pre-1985), pictures of streets, buildings, people from the past, or any other interesting bits of local history are always welcome and appreciated.  If you wish to donate or lend to us, please contact Russ at (708) 395-1217 or
